Latest tattoo lowdown.....

Recommended Posts

Beautiful @iowagirl - I love the color of the mum that is there - this is going to be pretty! Ah hell, you have a good design that could easily be extended down your back...

Thanks everyone! Ha, yeah, I know and I know it would look insane but feeeeeck did the bottom huuuurt. I was contemplating doing into the armpits too on both sides bc I feel it looks unfinished having bare skin there--but then this new stuff he went farther up the underside of the arm than he did on the other side so it's closer to my armpit and hohohohohooooo no. My husband is amazed at how I can just sit there and never let on how it hurts--but I don't see that I'd be able to sit for those spots. Makes me sad to find my breaking point.

A couple of pics taken professionally at the London convention, my first professional pics taken, some girl just grabbed me and took me into a room and said strip off lol

Still got two days with Victor as he is not totally happy with my back piece, not sure what he wants to do.

Its for a magazine, cant remember if its skin deep or one of them.

Anyhow here are some stunning shots of my superb body!

Got this little beauty at the NB HubCity Tattoo con one week ago.

A little hotstuff by Sailor Jerry Swallow, Canada's oldest tattooer. He was taught by Charlie Snow, who was taught by F.A Baldwin, who is arguably one of the first tattooers in Canada. He has the title of Hori from Horihide (Yes, that Horihide) and has been tattooing for over 50 years. He knew all the greats personally. Worked with Malone, Zeke, Jack, Irons, Huck, and all the others. Said Norman Collins was an asshole and Hardy was disrespectful. haha

Funny thing is, the lady who wanted to get a tattoo before me didn't even know who he was and wanted to get a tribal design out of a magazine. haha

Mega excited that I have managed to get an appointment with Steve Byrne at the Brighton Convention next year! I'm normally not quick enough off of the mark with things like this but I was up at 5am feeding our bambino, saw his IG post and jumped on it without really thinking too much!

Finally someone else who knows not only about Hub City but where NB is haha grats on the piece. Would have liked to make the con this year but couldn't.

On that note, I'm travelling with my gf to Toronto in a couple days. Any recommendations for shops to check out while there?

I would highly recommend The Pearl Harbor Gift Shop in Toronto. It's known as one of the very best and they always have at least one artist doing walk ins. Good luck and enjoy your stay.

Latest and greatest- Great guy out of Portland. Dunno if he wants name dropped or not, but Im sure you could figure it out if you wanted.

Almost tapped @7hrs, but a 15m break and 2 fantas later, I was back in action. Had another tattoo re-done on the inner forearm during this sitting. 8/9hrs total.

Finished off my second rib panel today with Dave C. at PSC tattoo. I'll use the royal "we" and say that we knocked this out in three sessions starting in late September, about 8 hours total. I'm super stoked on it, the colour in the tiger really pops!

Dave is a great guy, and his work speaks for itself, seek him out.
